    I've argued with numerous amounts of friends and people over the internet and I can't believe this match up is even being taken seriously. I may be bias against Bat-Man,as I hate his character, but come on! Hulk is TheHulk!

    The Hulk goes against armies and characters that are far more powerful than Bat-Man fairly regularly! The Hulk's strength is potentially limitless, his skin is extremely durable, and his healing factor rivals that of Wolverine. Sure, Bat-Man has some nifty gadgets, but the batarang isn't going to even phase Hulk! A few diehard Bat fans have said things like "Oh,well..Bat-Man could probably force feed Hulk some medicine that'd make him calm down or something." I'll agree that the only way Bat-Man would win is if by some miracle Hulk calmed down. Which isn't a walk in the park. The force feed him medicine theory is stupid at it's very best. You try putting something in Hulk's mouth he doesn't want in there. You see what happens!

    Even given preptime,I seriously doubt that Bat-Man could be one of Marvel's biggest tanks. Hulk could smash, rip apart, throw, beat, chew, kick, stomp, or shout Bat-Man apart. What gadget can a giant green skinned gamma radiation monster of death, destruction, and anger? I'm going to go ahead and apologize for any spelling or grammar errors.

    Are you sure you hate Batman?

    Have you given his books a try?

    Years ago I would have told you he is the most boring overrated character in existence. Today however I can't get enough of his books.

    I can't say I am certain of my hatred for Bats. I've read up on him from wikipedia, fan forums, and I've read probably ten comics of him at the most. I guess, I just find his character predictable and bland. I also never understood, he is the CEO, owner, founder, etc etc. of "Wayne Enterprises" yet he found time to travel the world and train in multiple fighting style?

    I don't hate the series as a whole though, I love Riddler and Joker. Alfred is also a great character, I just never really digged Bat-Man himself.

    I'm sorry but as much as i love THE HULK SMASH, Batman always has a plan. He would figure out a way to defeat him. He'll make a ring that sucks in Gamma Radiation or something, then break banners jaw with a right hook.

    How would Bat-Man spontaneously know that Hulk's power is from gamma radiation or even that Hulk's power varies on how angry/stressed he is? They are from two completely different universes and I'm pretty sure Hulk is a force unlike anything Bat-Man has faced.

    Also if any of Marvel's greatest minds (Reed Richards,Tony Stark,Bruce Banner himself,Hank McCoy,Henry Pym, etc etc.) couldn't think of a way to cure Banner, I seriously doubt that Bat-Man could. Don't get me wrong, I acknowledge that Bat-Man is no fool. I just really doubt he has enough knowledge in gamma radiation to make a ring of that strength.

    Batman is over powered kinda. Don't see how he can beat Hulk. Batman is an ordinary guy, who uses gadgets only.

    Yeah, I've read one of the crossovers where Bats fights Hulk and it was horribly written. Batman punched Hulk and he flew back.

    You can't just punch Hulk. It doesn't work that way. A human doesn't just smack Hulk.

    @CaptainDoeo: Obviously you dont know jack about Batman so I find your mad bashing of him really dumb. If you did in fact know anything other than a cursory glance at a wiki article then you would know that Batman didnt found Wayne Enterprises. He is also doesnt even really run the company other than making some decisions every know and then, his family founded Wayne Enterprises and he just inherited it. He leaves the day to day management of the company to other people. He mastered all the martial arts, and learned all the skills necessary to become Batman during a trip he took around the world for several years before he became Batman.

    Now about the whole Batman vs Hulk thing. The above poster wasnt being serious about the gamma absorbing ring thing. Im not sure if he could beat the Hulk one on one but he would go down fighting. The thing is though if you give Batman prep time he will figure something out. He will investigate the Hulk, and find out the source of his power, any weaknesses ect. And then he will take advantage of that. For example he could come up with some sort of gas that will knock Hulk out, or lay a traps for him ect.

    Really? How long ago is years ago? Years ago we got Knightfall through Knights End, Cataclysm through No Mans Land, Bruce Wayne Murderer and Fugitive, and perhaps maybe most importantly (of the recent past) the ENTIRE run of LotDK. Batman has been blessed with a seemingly endless strew of excellent storylines. Even though I still enjoy the bat books I'd say they've been a on slow down slope for years.

    So I pose to YOU. Have YOU given the older books a try?

    @noj: If I was bashing Bat-Man, I apologize. I didn't mean to come off as a idiotic a**. I acknowledge that my knowledge of Bats is certainly not to level with alot of other comic readers. Still, I just never could get into Bat-Man's past. I didn't see anything interesting about it. Yeah, sorry about thinkin' he was founder. I didn't remember so I through down what the answer could be. Either way, Hulk fights god-like figures and armies. I just don't see how any amount of expirence, training, or gadgets can save you from a force like The Hulk.

    I read the old crossover where Batman successfully makes Hulk look like a blundering idiot in a skirmish they get into. It was really stupid. It's like Batman being able to beat Superman. Ridiculous.

    Hulk would never to lose to Batman in a random encounter.

    Let me just get this one quickly done truely the only reason why people choose Hulk over Bats is because he has Power.And Bats is just human thats where you're underestimating him and people to now still do.The reason why Batman is so great is because he's brilliant and knows he can die any moment he never goes into battle without being prepared think about it Batman is human like you and me except he wants to help other.Superheros were made to let humans have an imagination of how we could be great.But hero's like Batman bring more reality he was made to prove the even us humans are not weak and could easily handle anything as long as we set our minds too.So don't underestimate Batman or humans just because there not as muscular as Hulk is.Anyways Bats already beat hulk once with ease.I think even Joker could beat Hulk

    I called it first!!
    Actually, the Batman Anti-Fans, such as yourselves, are worse.  
     
    (The vast of majority of) Batman fans go into a thread about the Dark Knight Rises and say it looks fantastic. 
     
    The anti-fans go into it and say how they think it'll be funny when it fails, or how it looks crap, or how it's overrated. Then the fans get up in arms, naturally defensive, and you then call them insane fanboys.  
     
    Rinse and repeat for every Batman thread.

    I don't have the greatest knowledge of comic books here, but with Batman vs. Hulk, preparation and environment are going to make the biggest difference. What we're dealing with boils down to intelligence and planning vs. raw uncontrolled power. If Hulk ever got Batman, he'd squish him like a grape. I don't think anyone is doubting that.

    However, if Batman can stay out of Hulk's grasp, what can the Hulk really do besides throw things at him? It's definitely a case where Bats would have to subdue/restrain him.

    Basically, if it were a straight up fight in a boxing ring, Hulk would slaughter Batman. If it were a chess game, Batman would slaughter Hulk. It all depends on whether they were both given time to prep (it wouldn't make a difference to Hulk, but Batman would obviously benefit) and what sort of environment they were in. For example, if they were in the Grand Canyon Batman would win by a landslide: it's very hot and physically draining (not good conditions for maintaining anger) and lots of great places to hide. If they were in a temperate, endless field without cover, then Hulk would win by curb-stomp.

    Can't find a way to put this lightly...Hulk smashes Batman. I'm not even sorry about saying that. I love Batman, but there is just no way. Maybe he could, like, tumble him up for a little bit, but not beat him.

    I have never read either of these but they dont really look to bad of PIS considering he has said he could squat press 2500 and the mid section is usually the easiest way to knock the wind out of anybody by just about anybody with some effort. its not like he was just slapping hulk around. just imo dont jump all over me over it.

    The writers could probably come up with a reason that Batman would win but really the Hulk would thrash him.

    Did you say Batman couldn't be "One of Marvel's biggest tanks"?, he's from DC

    @TheAcidSkull: Yes, I agree, there is no way for Batman to defeat Hulk in a straight up fight. I was merely suggesting that the environmental conditions of the grand canyon would be pretty ideal for Batman to escape and where he could hide for a long time and be an environment where maintaining the Hulk would be extremely taxing.

    Hulk is faster and stronger than batman. Batman couldn't do anything, ANYTHING to the hulk. He hits him? He would break his arm. He tries to evade him? Hulk catches him and destroys him. End of thread!

    This is a tough one as I like both characters quite a bit. Although Batman and Spiderman have always been my favorite heroes. I say that if they just randomly met in an alley, Batman wouldn't be able to beat Hulk. The fight would last for a couple of minutes, Batman would size up hulk or try and steal a piece of his flesh or something and then probably escape. Then he would analyze Hulk's DNA and try and come up with some sort of counter.

    I know, when i bought the Marvel vs. DC crossover classics trade-paperback when i was 10 years old back in 92 i thought it was the dumbest idea ever. i was like "What is Batman gonna do to Hulk? punch him in the nose?" then i read it as it turned out to be a surprisingly good crossover story despite a ridiculous idea.

    Which Hulk is he fighting? In any case, as much as I like Batman I don't see him winning this.
